U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry and his high school band, "The Electras," actually cut an album back in 1961. That's according to the site Kerry Rocks, "A Rock n' Roll History of Our Next President."
  • Not as many know this, but George W. Bush was the scrubs-garbed keyboard player in Prince's band during the "Purple Rain" era.
  • no, he was in "Night Ranger" - he got the doctor idea from the Prince guy.
  • Seriously, though, he was a clapper in a frat band called the Torques. The Electras aren't bad, as high school kids playing surf rock go.
  • bush is a freakin' roadie.
